Oriental Birthday

I made this card using a technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter called Outside the Box. I love this lady and painting her with my Metallic watercolors...but she is a pain to cut out. Texture and more texture. I used textured card stock for the base then added a rectangle of orange Vellum. The next layer is a very thick piece of cream Vellum. The edges were dragged along an orange/brown stamp pad.Add the lady and allow the birds and the ribbons from her kimono to extend outside the edge of the inked Vellum. Now let's add some ephemera like ribbon, oriental money and fish. Complete and ready for the mailbox.

Hi, Nancy. That sure is a pretty card. I like the woman in the image, too. I will have to try out that TJ technique now. :-)))
